Alexia Sinclair's The Regal Twelve

Ain't the Internet grand?  I've been having a lot of luck lately with finding awesome stuff on the internet.  Today I was looking for historical images of Elizabeth I for a post I'm working on and I came across this picture, which led me then to the artist's website where I found the others.  Alexis Sinclair is an Australian Fine-art Photgrapher and Digital Artist and I think she is UBER-FABULOUS!  I wish I could buy the whole series for my house - I could sit & stare at them all day! 

Of course Elizabeth is my favorite - talk about fierce, but I LOVE Eleanor of Aquitaine - absolutely stunning and powerful and exuding maternal sexiness!!

What do you think?  Which historical female would you like to see depicted?

Queen Elizabeth I


Marie Antoinette


Eleanor of Aquitaine




Isabella of Spain

Catherine the Great


Elizabeth Bathory


Christina of Sweden

Alexandra Romanov






  1. Those are so neat! They should do that as a photo shoot on America's Next Top Model. Maybe Joan of Arc could be on there?

  2. I remember seeing these a while ago (can't remember how or why) and thought they were just stunning! I would love to be that creative.

  3. Those are fabulous. I love digital art and this artists is very talented. Thanks for showcasing her!

  4. Her Elizabeth is so wonderful! I would love to see her do Anne Boleyn. I can only imagine how fabulous that would be. Thanks so much for sharing!

  5. Unbelievable though I have to say I absolutely love Isabella of Spain holding ships to the new world. Amazing

  6. Stunning! I love the pregnant one!
    Some of them look like they stepped into a fantasy world.

  7. Yeah I agree there should be a Joan of Arc shot.

  8. WOW! These are bizarre and intriguing! I don't know that I could handle them hanging all around my house, but they sure do command attention. Thank you for sharing.

  9. Wow! Thanks for posting these. I would have never seen them otherwise. They are amazing.

  10. I love her photographs. I discovered her months ago through The Duchess of Devonshires blog.

  11. Absolutely, stunningly beautiful!
    Thank you so much for making me discovering this artist! It's love at first sight! ;)

  12. These are absolutely beautiful and captivating. The artist was so creative and yet caught the essence of each of these women. Thanks for sharing them with us.

  13. So awesome! I think my favorite is Catherine the Great.

  14. Oh my! Those pictures are absolutely beautiful! That's a really cool find.

  15. Oh my! Those pictures are absolutely beautiful! That's a really cool find.

  16. These are very cool -- though I'm amused at how the queens all look like the very sexy women of Robert Parkes's art (anyone ever seen his stuff? I completely fell in love with it when I saw a gallery exhibit in Santa Fe.). Catherine the Great should be so lucky to look so good! I wouldn't mind owning her gown, though!

  17. What a find! They are all so beautiful.

  18. WOOOOOOWWWW! They are sooooo cool! And what amazingly perceptive context -- Elizabeth on a chess board, Eleanor the pregnant warrior, Marie Antoinette in the corset. I'm stunned and blown away!


  19. These are excellent! I especially love Eleanor of Aquitane. Thanks for sharing these!

  20. WOAH! Those are amazing! I'd seen the Marie Antoinette one before when I was searching for images to decorate my site...but HELLO ELIZABETH! Damn, that is some fierce hair! Thanks for sharing Amy, I can't wait to be the first to read your Elizabeth post :)

  21. I came across your blog in the BBAW scavenger hunt and I love it! What a great blog!

    This art is so awesome! Like you said, I wish I could buy them too. Elizabeth and Marie Antoinette are my favs!

    I am a history buff (majoring in history at college) and I love historical fiction. I'm sure I will visit often!

    See you around the blogosphere!

  22. As a writer and reader of historical fiction, I am thrilled to have found your wonderful blog. I love the pictures on this post of the famous women through history, especially the one of Marie Antoinette.

    I have a blog about Marie Antoinette's times you might enjoy:

    I hope you will pay us a visit!
